AFTER: Her latest decorating project brought more light and casualness to the home, inspired by the family’s stint in Spain. “This time I wanted it to feel more natural,” she says. “In Boston we get terrible long, cold winters. You get a little bit of cabin fever, so I wanted to have a lot of light and plants to combat the winter blues.” She started by painting the entire house – walls, ceiling and trim – in Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore. “That hue has always been one of my favourite whites,” she says. “There’s a touch of green and yellow, so it feels more cosy and gives a clean, bright white studio look without being cold.” The all-over colour accentuates the openness of the house and its high ceilings while de-emphasising all the traditional mouldings so things don’t look too busy. While she kept the sofa from their previous updates – “If I didn’t have three cats, I would have changed it, but they destroy everything,” she says – they sold almost all of their furniture before moving to Barcelona and renting out their home for a year. They returned with new pieces. “There’s definitely a Mediterranean influence there,” Miranda says. She ordered a custom-size carpet from a local shop and had it finished on the edges to create a large area rug that now sits on the maple floors with a water-based finish. A large pivoting turntable once sat in the middle of this room, used to turn carriage cars around.
